Catching up with YOU!
*
My 'must do by Saturday' list kept me busy all week. Everything didn't get done but the important items did - woohoo!!! The rest will be completed soon.

Yesterday I had an awesome surprise in the mail from Paulette. I couldn't believe my eyes when I tore open the envelope.

LOOK - it's the adorable Gingerbread Babies wool mat she made recently.
I shared with Paulette that during the Christmas holiday season I decorate my kitchen with gingerbread boys and girls ---- she decided I needed to own this delightful mat. Thank you so much, Paulette for sharing your sweet mat with me but especially for being a friend.


Speaking of mail - I'm seriously hanging my head in shame - I'm such a ditz! I don't use my car very often but yesterday I had to pick up my grandson, Eli at school so off I went. I was STUNNED when I looked in the passenger seat and discovered several envelopes & packages that I would have sworn I mailed weeks ago. Ugh!!!! If you've been anticipating something from me please, please, please accept my apologies - everything will go in the mail on Tuesday. I have no excuse - I'm just a DITZ!

I hope you're having a wonderful Saturday - I gotta GO!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends!

In Friendship!
